Hi ALl,

I am working on this pivot table with column lable is date. The data in date is for 5 years monthly. I want to present the data in grouped years not months.

2011     2012    2013    2014

I am having very difficult time with this.

Any help.

If the data is actually stored as dates not text, and there are no blank cells in the source data column, then you should be able to right-click, group, and choose group by Year.
